Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post ! Happy Monday I hope you’re Monday morning is going well so far. Mine of course and full of sleep deprivation as always but got to keep the blogs going, I am doing so well keeping up this schedule. I knew the more I keep up my blogging the sooner or later I’d find a posting schedule.
For today’s blog post is beauty related, let’s talk about the best beauty advice I’d received or even given. To be honest I somewhat remember some advice but this is a broad subject but I’d do my best. This is all the advice I have been given…
Keep a clean face before applying make up! Wash you face – This removes all dirt and pollution from your face so you can have a fresh face before applying make up. And it also helps your make up apply better !
Match your foundation from your neck not your hand – This is such an great advice I received in college in my make up program, your neck is actually the closet tone to your face NOT your hand.
Don’t leave your make up brushes in the bathroom – I mean how many of us wash our brushes and lay it down and sometimes don’t think to actually put it somewhere to dry? I know I’ve done it. Your going to want to lay your brushes near a window or dry clean area, when leaving it in the bathroom your brushes is actually picking up a lot of bathroom particles in the air and then this get applied to your face !
Keep your makeup brushes clean frequently – This one is a hard one for me but yes the best thing to to constantly keep up with keeping your brushes clean. A clean brushes equals a clean pimple free face.
Not everyone needs to contour their nose ! And contour the sides NOT the tip of the nose ! – I know this one is going to be a hard one for a lot but yeah not all nose shapes need to be contoured, this is one of the best tips I’ve received in college. We all have different shapes so why do they all need to be contoured the same?
Now for the makeup advice I have given or most likely would have given to someone …
Take care of you skin first then makeup – Taking care of your face first helps achieve the best make up application and also helps keep your skin healthy.
Apply mascara to your lashes not your false – This is a trick I actually came up with (in lash post), applying mascara first helps your false blend in well with your natural lash and also maximises your false lash life span.
Applying caster oil or Vaseline at night to lashes or brows help them grow – Yup, its true ! These two products help moisturise your lashes and brows and when applied often your lashes and brows grow quit a bit.
Brushing your brows often stimulates your brows to grow – This practice helps stimulate the root and when done often this allows growth, am one to say it has worked for me.
Have a separate towel for your face to dont use your “body” towel – This I actually never thought of, but if using the same towel for everywhere on your body and then used to wipe your face this can actually cause acne and pimples etc.
I hope some of these advice was helpful in some way, I am so sorry on late posting. I have been so busy this morning, I do now have a consistent posting schedule which are Mondays and Wednesdays. I will always post these days unless I got an extra blog post but I would let you know. Thanks for reading I hope you all have a great Monday !
Good afternoon everyone! and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone is having a great day so far? Here we are half way through the week already. For today blog post we will be digging into skincare and talking about a big issue for a lot of people, I’ve noticed working in the skin industry which is acne. For this post we will be looking into skin and at different segments to understand how skin works and the steps needed to diminish acne scaring.
So first things first the questions we always ask ourselves “how does acne scaring start?” and “why does it almost always leave a scar?” well now to answer these questions. There is different types of scaring their not all the same but acne scars most occur when acne occur and it is irritated before time. From picking to popping when it is not ready or it is inflamed or even when touching your face all the bacteria from you fingers get onto your skin this can lead to scaring, the best thing to do is to leave it alone and find the best products to assist your skin.
So the question now “how do I diminish my scars”, well to be honest with you all this is not going to just go over night. I can be honest again and tell you if you start with this and keep doing it you will see results, I am one to say it works I did have a few scars and now my face is pretty clear. We all know we always have dead skin cells on our skin and new skin cells are produced, and to get the cycle going and make sure we are on top of removing old skin cells the key to that is to always exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! This process removes the dead skin off your body and allows new skin cells to come, this is so important because the more you exfoliate the more overtime your pigmentation on your face will slowly but surely go. Make sure you know your skin type also this would help you determine in what exfoliate to get and also how many times a week to exfoliate and help you start a skin regimen. Keeping up this process will start shedding away those scars and your face will start glowing, and trust me your skin will thank you.
The next thing you want to keep up is your products, its not recommended to exfoliate and not apply product afterwords or even sunscreen/sunblock. When exfoliated your skin is exposed to the sun and pollution. Other ways of removing acne scars a bit of a faster way and skipping some steps for the process is more costly but someone who tried it I would recommend. The first one is having micro-dermabrasion done, this is a technique which someone is working with crystals. The top of the skin is peeled, this is a type of exfoliation on the skin which allows the skin to renew process (this treatment does not hurt lol) . I have had this treatment done more than once and given this treatment more than once I highly recommend this one. The next treatment which is great is chemical peels this is a treatment used to improve the appearance of your face, neck and even hands. So a mixture of a chemical fluid is applied to your face and this exfoliates the skin and causes the skin to soon peel off, and the new skin then comes through and is much more smoother. The next is laser skin resurfacing, its a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a laser to improve the appearance of the skin. This treatment treats minor facial flaws, by removing thin layers of the skin.
There is more medical treatments that’s can help improve the appearance of the skin, but of course I cannot go on and on. But for advice id recommend buying your favourite exfoliate and exfoliating as much as needed and following up with products and serums. That is it for Wednesday post there will be a new post up Monday, remember to comment & like even post questions I love always hearing from you all! I hope you have a great rest of your Wednesday.
Good morning everyone! And welcome to another blog post. I am excited because today I can finally get two blog posts out for this week, I finally have settled on a schedule I can work with to get back to being consistent. For today’s post I decided to do a post on make up application, tomorrow is finally Christmas and its the best time to put out a make up post. From since having my blog I get questions on make up and lash application, I’ve also get tons of questions away from my blog. I decided to do a post make up application step by step for those who would like ideas on the application process.
Skin Perpetration – If its one thing I had learn while I was studying to become an esthetican it was that our face is the base to any make up application. So if you want a smooth glowing make up application it starts with the face. Another great thing to learn is that every girl wants that perfect application but if you suffer from skin issues example severe oily skin, breakouts, pimples, dry skin and dont treat these issues and cover it up I am letting you know it wont help. Everything underneath needs to be treated first before covering it up, if its not then you wont get the perfect foundation you need for putting on a great application.
Products made for you! – One big mistake I noticed a lot of girls and older women do that hey I even have done is buy products not for you. Now to get a great application you also have to get the products your skin needs and to also make your application last longer. Your probably wondering ” But how do I know what my skin needs?” well we would need to analyse our skin and get to know it. But there is a difference between “Skin Type” and “Skin Condition”, everyone has a skin type but not everyone has a skin condition. The difference between skin type and condition is conditions can be dehydration, dryness, sun damage, hyper pigmentation ,wrinkles and acne. Which skin types are normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. When we start getting to know what our skin needs and is lacking we will then have a better understanding of what make up and skin care to buy.
The Right Products – Okay! So you studied your skin, next would be buying the right skin products and make up for your skin. We all love recommending the next best product that came out but do we ever ask our self “Wait! is it for my skin!?” and then we wondering why our foundation is turning orange or why this foundation is making your skin oily. The next step would be to buy the right skincare and picking out the right products either it be Sephora or MAC.
Products – When buying the right products it serves good to your skin when you either a make up lover (like myself) or occasionally wear make up. Buying the right foundation, primer, setting powder and moisturiser make a big deal when its made for your skin it makes your application come out flawless and lasting so much longer. Also a bonus to doing this is one your skin will love you and second your skin will less break out give problems because your using products that is helping your skin while getting to wear as much make up as you would like.
Using these four tools will help you with your make up application process, when applying anything over your skin you want the base to be looking great for whatever that goes on top to look great. Look at everything like this, if you have a lot of acne or dry patches and old skin cells on your skin and you dont properly wash you face or prep it for make up and just apply your make up will come out uneven and looking dull and wouldn’t last that long. You 100% want to remember to always have a perpetration before anything, your skin will start to allow improvements. I hope all this info helps, I will soon make a second half to this post on the actually make up application process. Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you all. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a great rest of your day!
Good morning little Black Dress fashionistas! I am back with another post, as we are now in fall and saying good-bye to the hot weather until next year; I said why not make a skin related post. I know we all somewhat struggle with skin issues and especially every time the weather changes. So in today’s post let’s get into talking about extractions.
So before we start, the question we may be asking is what is extractions?
Extractions is something that takes place after skin has been throughly cleansed, exfoliated and steamed. Steam helps to soften up the skin and prep it before extractions takes place. This also helps soften up the sebum (oils) clogged in the skin and dead skin cells, which all clogs the skin pores. Extractions are one of the most important steps to take place in a facial, especially for any clients with blackheads and white heads that cannot remove them at home.
Benefits to extractions
If struggling with high levels of sebum (oils) because you may be an oily skin type or combination getting regular or few extractions done with help control white and blackheads. One of the best benefits to getting this done is over each time your skin will start to improve. Also following extractions an antiseptic/antibacterial is applied to bring the skin back to its normal pH balance, this also aids in preventing post facial breakouts. Also by choice getting high frequency done after extractions to the area kills the bacteria and calms the skin.
One of the best things of getting extractions done regularly is removing the gunk from your face, and allowing your face to feel zit free and feeling good after each treatment. Having extractions done also helps your skin get faster healing from acne, lesions and blemishes.
Conclusion to getting this done? Many people are always tempted to picking or poping, to staying and keeping and also achieving a healthier clear skin is it is always important to keep your hands away from your face. Doing this at home can damage and your pores and spread bacteria and actually make your skin worse, it is always best to leave it all to a professional. So if you got that oily acne skin or even constantly getting white heads and black heads why not go try this out?
Hope you all enjoyed my Wednesday post! Hope I could help a little if any of you are always seeking skin info, remember to like & comment I always love reading them and commenting back. See you on my next post! Xo
